oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Seismic surveys and civil engineering

Volume 18, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



It is the aim of this article to provide forthe non-geophysicist an up-to-date introduction to the usefulness of land seismic surveys in civil engineering. Applications of the seismic refraction method in depth-to-bedrock studies, excavation problems and geotechnical work are discussed and indications of the limitations are given. Emphasis is on the use of the results rather than on their collection and so, except where relevant, no mention is made of the principles and field practice of seismic surveys.
